Topic: Way OT - Transformer Performance was: Dimmer plus diode (13 lines)
1) From: Ken Mary
Education never stops. Thanks for the info. Lesson learned: do not mix 
diodes with transformers. I finally realized where the "dc" comes from.
However, I have successfully used a dimmer on the 120 vac input to a
transformer, Radio Shack 273-1512B. Although it is not recommended, in this
case it works for the intended purpose. In the running time of a typical
roast, the transformer gets just barely warm to the touch.
